Not enough bling in your pocket and want to attend the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco for free? Now you can. If you sign up
to be a conference associate, you'll get a full Giga pass with privileges when you're not working (an $1850 value).
You'll be taking part in helping the conference run, and working extremely non-demanding jobs like:
- Guarding doors
- Monitoring conference sessions
- Checking badges at meals and special events
- Stuffing conference bags
- Data entry
...And much more! Leaving your brain free to figure out what you want to see and deciding which lectures you want to sit in on.
The GDC is a great opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at the game industry, and to witness first-hand all of the work that goes into building a game from scratch. Tim Brengle and Ian MacKenzie who run the CA program are top-notch guys, so you'll be in good hands. You'll make friends, attend parties, and get all the benefits of the Giga pass (including free breakfast and lunch on workdays, toastyyyyy!). Several Joystiq readers went the volunteer route last year
and were able to enjoy the program gratis, so what are you waiting for?
The GDC is in San Francisco from March 5th through the 9th in 2007. We hope to see you there.
